The good news continues at Mooney Airplane Co., which reports that it had record new orders and deliveries for the first quarter of 2005.
The Kerrville, Texas-based company recorded 13 new orders in the first three months of the year. It also delivered 20 aircraft, more than doubling its output from the first quarter of 2004. Company officials anticipate that total orders this year will top last year’s 80 orders. Fueling the growth are the new models that feature the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit, including the Ovation2 GX and Bravo GX.
